Colour Create Challenge #4 - Pink And Grey

Well it's week 4 of the Colour Create Challenge already and I'm loving every minute of it! I think this is my fave of all the colours we've chosen so far, actually it was my dd Georgia's idea. Funny but pink and grey reminds me very much of clothes I used to wear in the eighties growing up. I had a pale grey ra-ra skirt and a matching hoop-striped sweatshirt with bat wings and a crisscross back.......... with the matching pale pink obligatory legwarmers of course! Bring back any memories?

For this week's card I have used the gorgeous Hettie image from Pink Petticoat. I was really tempted to add the 'Does my Bum Look Big' sentiment, but that isn't really sticking to the cute and cuddly theme now, is it? Rather cheeky in fact..... get it, hee hee?

If you look closely you may be able to tell that I used gloss on the little grey flowers and there is lots of decoupage going on too! I'll keep this card for a newborn baby girl or maybe a little girl's birthday, always handy to have in stock methinks.

Image - Pink Petticoat Download
Sentiment - computer generated
Papers - DCWV Quote Stack
Punch - Martha Stewart ZigZag Border
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Sticky Gems and Ribbon from my stash
Accents - Rangers Glossy Accents

I really hope you can join in the challenge this week and also check out the cards made by the other DT members....... they're so pretty!

Well, it's back to school and work then tomorrow (big sigh). Still, I suppose if we didn't have to do the boring stuff then we wouldn't appreciate the nicer things in life, would we? Have a great week peeps!

Do you know, you brought a grin to my face when I read the bit about the clothes you used to wear in the 80's ! When you gave us this challenge, the first thing I thought of was a pink and grey cardigan my Grandma knitted for me when I was about 12 and I still have it now - I can't bear to part with it !!!

Gorgeous card Tara, I love the image you have used and your papers are so pretty. Thank's for a great challenge.

Have a great week,

Huggles, Jo xxx
